Scorpion gelding out of a Tirol mare related to the likes of Might Bite and Don't Touch It. Won on most recent bumper appearance here last month. Worth a market check on hurdling debut.

Poor form in a series of hurdle starts including falling on his handicap debut when last seen in June. Hard to make a case for.

Pulled up on both career point-to-point starts and first time tongue-tie did not bring about any improvement earlier this month. Plenty to prove here.

Placed twice from four starts over hurdles including when runner-up in a Leopardstown maiden hurdle but has shown nothing since including at Leopardstown in March when beaten favourite over 2m4f. Worth noting in the betting.

Well beaten and never nearer in two career maiden hurdle starts at Killarney and Ballinrobe last month. Form doesn't warrant support here.

511-12OR:

Never a factor in two maiden hurdle displays in the last month well beaten on both starts and looks vulnerable in this company.

Gelding by Stowaway out of a Mark Of Esteem mare related to sturdy national hunt types Hidden Cyclone and Outlander. Looks a long-term prospect on debut.

82-rated Flat handicapper for Joseph O'Brien winning one of his five starts. Yard one winner from their last 17 starts and a watching brief for now.

Failed to build on a promising run at Navan in March when disappointing in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle beaten 19L last month over 2m on soft to heavy ground. Hard to construct much of a case for the son of Dubawi here.

711-12OR:

Well beaten a total of 80L in two dour maiden hurdle starts over a year apart finishing 10th of 18 earlier this month at Killarney. Looks up against it here.

Still looking in the hands of the handicapper the Canford Cliff gelding showed plenty of promise last month in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle over 2m on yielding to soft ground finishing fourth of 12 beaten 5¾L. Could be of interest.

Six career victorys on the AW at Dundalk but still without a win on the Flat in 13 turf starts. Hefty struggle looks to be on the in store here.

511-5OR:

Well beaten on debut at Tramore last month and failed to finish a 12-runner maiden hurdle when upped in trip at Wexford a couple of weeks ago. May appreciate the drop in trip here.

Doyen mare related to Kumbeshwar, Dandridge and multiple scorer for Alan King Valdez. Winner on debut in a Cork bumper when last seen in July and likely to be a warm order here.

511-5OR:

Well beaten and never a factor on a bumper and maiden hurdle start when last seen in January finishing 12th of 16 well beaten 103L. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

First Reserve: Morozov gelding out of a Video Rock mare related to game jumpers Opening Batsman, Eduard and seven-time winner Jayo Time. Well beaten on both career starts and best watched for now.

Second Reserve: Well beaten on debut in a Ballinrobe bumper earlier this month when sent off at 50/1 and hard to make a case for here.

Forecast

Jetez (5/4), Savannah Storm (4/1), Katie Connell (4/1), Alpine Cobra (6/1), Storm Rising (12/1), Boris Grishenko (20/1), Mr Everest (25/1), Cloudybackwest (33/1), I Keano (33/1), Melman (33/1), Cave Master (33/1), Biddy Be (40/1), Saddlers Ask (50/1), Offshore Oscar (66/1), Sticky Situation (100/1), War Room (100/1), No Holdenback (100/1), Berkeley Byron (100/1), Jp Dundee (125/1), Dont Tell Suellen (125/1), Kanturk Bard (125/1)

Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained KATIE CONNELL is likely to be popular in the market here and can be expected to land the spoils in a competitive handicap. The five-year-old took the long way round when winning a 2m good ground bumper when last seen in July finishing 4½L ahead of Allardyce who has gone on to be a 118-rated hurdler putting in a number of consistent displays. The generally disappointing Jetez has more potential than a number of these and game bumper winner Alpine Cobra can hit the frame.
